2. The Baltimore Ravens not seen many receivers like the Seattle Seahawks
The Baltimore Ravens' secondary has stepped up in a big way this season. Brandon Stephens is a breakout performer, and Marlon Humphrey is getting back into the swing of things. Beyond that, Arthur Maulet has looked good when he is healthy. Still, they have not seen a test like the Seattle Seahawks.
Yes, the Ravens did face Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd and walked away with a win. Still, Higgins had 89 yards and two touchdowns, and the Bengals scored 24 points with a banged-up Joe Burrow. Now, the next best group is in town with DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njigba. JSN has just 209 yards, but 147 of them have come in the last three weeks. So have both of his touchdown catches this year. We all know D.K. Metcalf.
Aside from the Bengals, the Ravens have not faced a group like this. Still, seeing Higgins have success against Stephens and then George Pickens beat Marlon Humphrey makes you wonder if D.K. Metcalf will have success. Will JSN make the Ravens think about moving away from Maulet in the slot? We are going to learn a lot about just how good the pass defense is this weekend.
